A.E. (Alicia) Stallings is a highly acclaimed poet and translator. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, she has received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, a fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation, and, in 2011, a prestigious “genius grant” from the MacArthur Foundation, which recognized her for “mining the classical world and traditional poetic techniques to craft imaginative explorations of contemporary life that evoke startling insights about antiquity’s relevance for today.” Her most recent verse translation is called “The Battle Between the Frogs and Mice: A Tiny Homeric Epic,” and her collection of poems “This Afterlife” will be published later in 2022.
